Blurb: The ever after, the demonic realm that parallels the human world, is shrinking. If it disappears completely, so does all magic. It's up to witch-turned-daywalking-demon Rachel Morgan to avert catastrophe and keep life from changing... for the worse.

While saving the world is important, it isn't Rachel's only motivation. There's also the small fact that she caused the ley line to rip in the first place, setting off a chain reaction of unfortunate events. That little mistake has made her life forfeit unless she can fix it. It's also made her more than a few enemies, including the most powerful demon in the ever after—a terrifying entity who eats souls and now has an insatiable appetite for her. He's already kidnapped her friend and goddaughter to lure her out, and if Rachel doesn't give herself up soon, they'll die.

But Rachel has more than a few impressive and frightening skills of her own, and she isn't going to hand over her soul and her life without one hell of a fight. She's also got a surprise: elven tycoon Trent Kalamack. With this unlikely ally beside her—a prospect both thrilling and unnerving—she's going to return to the ever after, kick some demon butt, rescue her loved ones... and prevent an apocalypse before it's too late. Or, at least that's the plan..

Review: Rachel has always known herself to be a witch. But new information has surfaced proving her to be a demon. This is not something Rachel was willing to accept easily. But with her new powers growing daily and with the teachings of her demon teacher Al, she learns how to twist curses to her advantage. She also finds herself yet again having to save the world or save the Ever After, which is the world of the demons. It's hard for Rachel to defeat the person that caused the destruction of the Ever After because.. it was herself.  While trying out her new powers and jumping lines before she had the skill, Rachel made her line dangerous and it started to affect all others lines. Lines are what all magical beings pull their power from. All the while Rachel has a Super Demon-made Demon out to kill her and all the other demons. Rachel is out powered by him and needs to team up with an unlikely couple to save everyone.
Trent is powerful and rich and was recently outed as an Elf. He likes to hire Rachel off and on to help in his mission to make his people strong and united again, like in the past before the demons escaped from them. But Trent is torn between his two daughters, one by blood and one adopted. Lucy's mother, his ex, wants him back and with their marriage it would unite the Elves. His other daughter Ray,  just lost her mother at the hands of Super Demon and he needs to help Rachel save them.  But who will save him from the choices he has to make?
